Thankfully this is a situation that greater minds than mine will have trouble determining.

The Iranian position is perticulary intresting.

"Ironically, the two opposing groups may find common ground when it comes to Iran, which welcomed world soccer’s efforts to seek a compromise, but is likely to remain in the firing line because of its imposition of the hijab on its players rather than allowing it to be an individual voluntary decision. Iran is further likely to run afoul of world soccer because of its insistence that visiting foreign women soccer teams dress in accordance with the Islamic republic’s interpretation of Islamic law. "

I don't see the Matilda's (Aussie Women) towing the line on that one anytime soon.
